The setting of Primal is a far cry from its predecessors (okay, how could I not make that pun?). Gone are the guns and vehicles, replaced this time with bows and mammoths. And yes, I did just compare a jeep to a mammoth, because in Far Cry Primal you can tame animals, and yes, ride baby mammoths (I’m going to feel so guilty if my baby mammoth buddy dies in battle). Far Cry Primal releases Tuesday for Xbox One and Playstation 4, but PC gamers will have to wait until March 1 to get their hands on it.

Superhot’s gameplay moves at your pace. Literally. Time only moves when you do, with bullets stopping in midair until you make your next move. Superhot can be looked at as a tactical first-person shooter or a fast paced frenzy depending on your play style. Play the superold (you see what I did there?) prototype here to see if the concept is something you want to spend your money on. Superhot releases Thursday for PC gamers, with Xbox One owners having to wait until March.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Forgetting about Garden Warfare 2’s extremely awkward entrance at E3 last year (but who really wants to forget this?), the second game in this Plants vs. Zombies offshoot grows upon what was in its predecessor. Making a class based shooter with cartoony visuals is nothing unique this year (I’m looking at you Battleborn and Overwatch), but tailoring it for kids sets it apart. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 releases Tuesday for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow

They’re back, baby! Nintendo is finally bringing the originals to the 3DS’ eShop this week. Whether you want to be taken back to Nostalgiaville and replay your beloved childhood games, or you just want to see where all the hype began, you may want to consider picking one of these up. They are at little pricey at $10.00 a piece, but if you want them you can download them starting Saturday, exactly 20 years after Red and Blues’ releases.
